How a car accident lawyer can help

We will begin investigating your claim on day one. We move quickly because every day that passes– is a day that evidence can disappear, or witnesses can forget what they saw.

Building a winning claim takes more than a thorough investigation. Next, a car accident attorney must also compile the evidence necessary to prevail at trial. This can involve establishing that the other driver was at fault for the accident. It can also include witness testimony, accident reconstruction, or surveillance videos. In addition to building a winning case, a plaintiff must also show that they are entitled to damages.

At any point in this process, the other side could come in with a settlement offer. Negotiation frequently begins at the very beginning of a case before a lawsuit is ever filed. If your attorney is unable to resolve a claim before filing suit, the next step for them is to initiate a lawsuit. Your attorney will work to prepare for trial while continually looking to resolve a claim with a settlement.

Damages available at trial

If a plaintiff prevails on the merits of their case, the jury will next face the task of determining the value of your damages. The specific damages available to you will depend on how badly you were injured in the crash. Some of the most common are:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills, including the cost of hospital stays, emergency room visits, and physical therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
